While admittedly I'm largely a lurker, I do enjoy reading the posts and have been very informed by the variety. That being said, I just learned from a coworker that where we're located in the Dallas/Ft Worth area they're planning a large highway closure for this weekend as part of an ongoing project to provide highways 360 and 30 with a proper interchange.

As quoted, "Work continues placing steel girders for future connector ramps within the interchange. The addition of the steel girders is changing the look of the interchange bringing the future direct connectors in view. Placing steel girders and concrete bridge beams requires road closures for motorist safety. Upcoming major highway closures are:

SH 360 Northbound and Southbound – Closed between Avenue J and Six Flags Drive Friday, Aug. 19, 8 p.m. through Monday, Aug. 22. 5 a.m. Southbound traffic will exit Avenue J/Lamar Boulevard and re-enter from the Six Flags Drive entrance ramp. Northbound traffic will exit Six Flags Drive and re-enter from the Brown Boulevard/Avenue K entrance ramp.

The City of Arlington has partnered with Waze to give drivers the best experience possible to get around town. Drivers can download Waze for free at www.waze.com/get for iOS and Android and see real-time traffic, find optimal routes, avoid road closures and more."

And the URL of a handy article from the City of Arlington, TX is - https://www.arlingtontx.gov/news/my_arlington_t_x/news_stories/i30_update_2022

So drivers passing through the Dallas/Ft Worth mid-cities this weekend should use caution and possibly an alternative route!

I'll see your DFW and raise you a St Louis, MO metro!

Starting this Friday night, part of I-270 will be closed until early AM on Monday for a major road project. Check the MODOT site for details.

Welcome to the Metro-plex! It's highways have been under construction since I was a kid in the 60's!

Kevin, thanks for the heads up. I’m on my way to a delivery in Arlington on Saturday. I’ll keep your warning in mind and check to see if my route will be affected.

That's DFW for you. I'm in Dallas (Hutchins) right now. I avoid 30 like the plague if I can help it. sH 67 was closed today for several exits. Have no idea why.

Ever see the movie "Falling Down" with Michael Douglas?

Hey PackRat,

That ain't so funny. I was a kid in the 50's and a teenager in the 60's. And now in the 2020's I'm just plain getting old.

Navypoppop, “getting old” is not the current term for guys like us. The new term is “pre-dead”. Lol

Back to the original topic; watch for road closures EVERYWHERE. Toledo is still not complete since the last time I WAS DRIVING.
